how is that different from x86_64?

The point of the metadata is not to describe what system the files will
be used on - but to describe the files.

so if you have a package foo.mips.rpm and the union of the filecolors
for that package is 2 it will still be 2 whether you're on a mips64 or
mips32 or a little of both.
